(1-4 wks for delivery)
Tweaked Clarke Sweetone by Jerry Freeman. Key of D.
Sweetones are made by The Clarke Tinwhistle Company, founded in 1843 by Robert Clarke.
They combine a modern, injection molded whistlehead with a traditional, rolled and soldered conical tinplate tonebody. The combination gives a very easy to play whistle that has been widely accepted as a great inexpensive whistle for beginning players.
The voicing is complex/reedy, with a certain resonance that is characteristic of thin wall conical whistles and distinguishes them from cylindrical whistles such as Generations and Feadogs.
The main issue with untweaked Sweetones is an excess of breath noise and a lack of focus in the timbre.
The Freeman Tweaked Sweetone has been adjusted to remove most of the extraneous breathiness, create a more focused and clear voicing, and somewhat reduce the breath requirement to give the player better control.
Tweaked Sweetones are available in the keys of D and C in the tonebody color of black.
